Nosy Crow is shortlisted for four British Bookseller Industry Awards

We are incredibly happy – and somewhat shellshocked! – that, just a week after winning two IPG Independent Publishing Awards, Nosy Crow has been shortlisted for FOUR British Bookseller Industry Awards.

We’re shortlisted in the Children’s Publisher of the Year category, against an incredibly strong shortlist (of much bigger, and older, publishing houses): Bloomsbury Publishing, DK, HarperCollins Children’s Books, Macmillan Children’s Books, Penguin Random House Children’s, Scholastic Children’s Books, and Usborne Publishing.

We’re also shortlisted for Independent Publisher of the Year, sponsored by Firsty Group, against another very impressive shortlist of children’s and adult publishers: Andersen Press, Faber & Faber, Head of Zeus, Laurence King Publishing, Michael O’Mara Books, Oneworld, and Pavilion Books.

We’re very proud of Ola Gotkowska, Nosy Crow’s Rights Manager (recently shortlisted for the IPG Young Independent Publisher of the Year award), who is recognised in the Rights Professional of the Year category, sponsored by Frankfurt Book Fair – up against Lisa Baker (Faber & Faber), Kate Cooper (Curtis Brown), Kate Hibbert (Little, Brown), Andrew Sharp (Hachette Children’s Group), Mary Thompson (HarperCollins), and Michele Young (Pan Macmillan).

And finally, we are thrilled that My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons has been shortlisted for the inaugural Children’s Book of the Year award – up against heavy-hitters David Walliams and Tony Ross (for Grandpa’s Great Escape), J. K. Rowling and Jim Field (for the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone), Judith Kerr (for Mog’s Christmas Calamity), Terry Pratchett (for The Shepherd’s Crown), Frances Hardinge (for The Lie Tree), Matt Haig and Chris Mould (for A Boy Called Christmas), and Joe Sugg, Matt Whyman, and Amrit Birdi (for Codename: Evie).

Congratulations to everyone who’s been shortlisted!
